    Dear Holly and Cliff, Both of your parents were a huge part of my adult life after meeting Bill. They were second parents to Bill, and I loved all the time spend at your home, both before and after Bill died. Your folks made your house a place of love, laughter, and safety and I was always made to feel welcomed and loved. Ron will be as missed as Pix (Mary). Loving and healing thoughts are being sent your way.

    Holly & Cliff my Condolences from Me and my Family
    It is hard to loose a best friend, but I Rejoice in the fact that Ron & Pix are together again. So many great memories I have, fishing,
    trips to Florida, Casino trips, July 4th at Cliff’s for fireworks and the list goes on & on. I was proud to be standing next to Ron when they tied the knot. I won’t be able attend the celebration,
    but you can bet, I will be having a cocktail and reminiscing.

    Holly & Cliff…
    There never seems to be enough time for good friends, but I was so blessed in my life with the friendship and encouragement of your Dad and Mom! With Ron’s passing, I am flooded with so many wonderful memories of laughter, merriment and excitement for living. He never let a visit go by without sharing his proud feelings about you both. So happy with your lives.
    Ron, you are missed by so many, and my wish is granted, for you are now at peace. Rest well forever, dear friend!

    Holly and Cliff, my wife Bobbi and I were saddened to hear of Ron’s passing. Cousin Libby called to let us know. Ron and our cousin Pix were a wonderful couple, so full of life and fun to be with both in Longboat Key and Galesville. We’d talk and joke for hours sipping on our martinis and Manhattans or ride the Gator and ATVs at the farm. Remembering their early years and then the amazing and successful business they built is a credit to their hard work ethic and ingenuity. What a great legacy for your families.
